Is it possible to sue someone for being a mean and awful person? It might require more than a doctor’s note to prove that someone is intentionally causing emotional distress. If the ex-wife is harassing the OP and her husband that would be another story. They could keep detailed documentation of each occurrence, make formal complaints to law enforcement and request a restraining order. That would probably hold up better in court.
Having said that, I doubt the OP would want to take that route. Regardless of how awful this woman is, she’s still the mother of her husband’s children. This complicates matters severely. The OP didn’t mention how old the children are, but I imagine that would cause a ripple in the family. The move could also backfire; the ex-wife might attempt full custody of their children or cause further drama.
B28, can you give examples as to what this woman has done to disrupt your lives? Has she done anything recently since moving in or has she kept to herself? It might help to know details about her behavior. If she’s doing things that are bordering on harassment than maybe Hope’s right and there are legal actions you can take?
